Hi all,

I want to run Gxine (multimedia player) on start-up i.e when puppy boots up I want gxine also to appear without me having to type gxine in the command line for example.

So I though of typing 'gxine' in the start-up script /etc/rc.d/rc.local but it doesn't run it.
Am I doing this wrong?? Please help...

Many thanks

edit /root/.xinitrc

Before the line
exec $CURRENTWM
enter this:
gxine &
or:
sleep 3 && gxine &

If you forget the "&" in the end, it will block all other applications, so you would have no desktop.
So don't forget the "&" Exclamation

That works great.....cheers!!

How can I get it it to load to full screen?
There must be some parameters you can type in but 'man gxine' doesn't really help much!!

Thanks again

I updated the script, it avoids the 3 second-delay in the beginning now.

I think Jwm has an autohide-feature.

edit /root/.jwmrc

there you can replace:

Code:
   <Tray  autohide="false" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="1" height="26" >


with:

Code:
   <Tray  autohide="true" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="1" height="26" >


Then it should hide automatically.

I 've also met this strange thing as xine plays movie fullscreen while jwm tray remains on screen. (It happened with xine-ui, gxine played fine - that had other disadvantage for me.)
The autohide trick works well as Mark explained or you can do it from menu: control panel, jwm configuration, taskbar, tray autohide option. (Un fortunately it does not work for me, but worth a try)
Anyway, after modification you must restart jwm.

It was annoying and inconvenient for me so I changed the window manager to xfce. You'll find more about xfce wm here:

Xine and Xfce get on well...
